Harvard Capstone Film Projects

Spread the love

My proposal for Harvard Capstone Film Projects has been accepted! Saturday brought the great (& terrifying) news putting me right on track for a May 28, 2020 graduation date.

When I registered for video editing in the Fall of 2018, I had no idea it would completely change my life path. It was in that class I learned I am happiest behind the computer editing and animating.

A long wait.

I finished last semester on December 4 and then waited and waited and waited. Grades finally came out January 7 but no joy.

The proposal writing class is a no credit class, nice because its free, bad because you don’t even get a pass/fail. I knew I’d passed the class – my adviser used my project as a teaching tool, but you never know for sure with academia.

Finally, Capstone Project Approval

As always, the news comes couched in a cryptic email. I immediately logged on to the student portal and got the good news.

Insert heavy sigh of relief followed by wave of panic here.
